Limited Edition 7.247 bottles, 175 magnums and 10 Jeroboam
Nice and intense cherry-red colour. Dense tears clean, bright and extremely well presented.
Intense and complex nose power, predominance of candy red berries (redcurrant and cherry) with hints of clove, pink and black pepper. All flavours are seductive and in harmony.
The bouquet is powerful, excellent personality from the “terroir” with elegant tannins. In the after taste the fine oak notes make reappearance. Long finish in the mouth.
The Tempranillo grapes used in this wine come exclusively from vines older than 60 years from La Horra. Soils are clay and sandy with a small amount of limestone and at altitude between 800-840 meters. After being hand-harvested and undergoing cluster selection in the vineyards, the grapes are destemmed and go through gravity-controlled tank of 7.500 L, with two to four days of cold-skin maceration prior to fermentation. An additional two months of maturation follow, with malolactic fermentation taking place in barrels. The wine is aged for sixteen months in new 500 L French oak barrels. It is then aged an additional 18 months in bottle before leaving the cellar.
The 2016 harvest was characterized by a good yield production. The climatology conditions with heavy rains during winter and spring, very dry summer gave very healthy berries. The harvesting took place from September 29th –October20th and gave to the wines powerful black fruit aromas, balance tannins, intense colour and low acidity.
The 2016 vintage was qualified as VERY GOOD
